For those who are wondering what it is, it's Pi Day.

The doodle was created with help from Dominique Ansel, the pastry chef behind the Cronut, and leads to a search for "Pi Day".

The earliest proven use of a good approximation of the length of a circumference relative to the radius is 3+1/7 and it has been used at the construction of pyramids in Ancient Egypt. For mathematicians the day honors Pi being the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter and plays a key component in geometry.

Historically, the first Pi Day was held at a San Francisco Science Museum in 1988 when the physicist looked at the calendar and made a decision to pay homage to the mathematical entity. On the other, food lovers see the day as an excuse to bake pies, which is both ingenious and delicious-and lucrative for food brands like Genius Kitchen (see our recipe for Surprise Rainbow Pi Day Cake). Eating pies is one of the ways mathematics enthusiasts celebrate Pi Day.

Pi is useful in every field of science as it's used for calculations involving the volume and surface area of spheres, as well as for determining the rotations of circular objects such as wheels.

Archimedes has been the first to discover the first two decimals of the Pi number.

Pi Day is an official celebration of the mathematical constant π, also represented by the number 3.14. The challenge is in its fifth year, and features mathematical problems that can be solved using Pi.

According to piday.org, Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. Interestingly, Albert Einstein's birth anniversary falls on March 14, which is also celebrated at Princeton by organising an annual Einstein look-alike contest.
